Sigh...

So while in search of meat which I would have had rot for narcotics production I went out again. Outside of the little canyon to where all the dangerous things are.

Rip Morellatops.

Rip that character and everything they were both carrying. I made the mistake of trying to go into my menu while I wasn't riding it and in the mayhem of...

So my Twitter horoscope for the day said something about not taking any risks today..

"Monday, September 5, 2016 - You must revisit the lesson of self-restraint today or suffer the consequences of an ill-fated impulsive decision. It's more advantageous to improve what you already have going now, rather than rushing off to start something new. The Moon's shift into your 6th House of...

At least one good thing about the GTX 1070 and playing Ark is that there's a feature called Nvidia Ansel for making screenshots in 2D and 3D.

I don't really care about the screenshots but having the option to pause the game and fly around is a godsend.. almost.

It's like a cheat mode, in the day time, when you kill something...

Things could be worse I suppose.

But the worst thing are these damned Velociraptors. They are bloody incessant.

I mean now that I've mastered the boomerang they aren't much of a threat to my person but they are a friggin hassle when I have to tame. So far they've killed my character a half dozen times.. but they are shredding my shelter...

So Ark has always had this one moment.. After you understand how to play and you're on your way to being able survive but aren't quite there yet.

The moment when you know you're going to die.

Sadly in Scorched Earth that moment is guaranteed when you get 'on fire'. It isn't a good thing like in Overwatch.. it's an...

So after getting laughed at by my roommate/landlord because I told him I'd given up on Scorched Earth for a bit.. he's all like you're odd... you say you want a challenge and yet the minute you have one you give up.

I'm like.. although sure I'm accused of that very often, I was tired and I'm suffering...

//I haven't given up on No Man's Sky but I can't pass up another shot at Ark Survival. I mean I spent a huge amount on this PC and it has been used almost exclusively to play NMS and to watch people play games on Twitch.. and even that's a stretch.. they want me to mod.. so I don't spend...

At the point where if as usual I end up feeling like I'm nothing more than a creepy stalker in your life no matter what you say or what I try to do... I might as well move on and save you the trouble of having to push me away. Have fun with your friends and wtv.

So the other thing I did was discover that No Man's Sky has an issue with retaining data about Points of Interest on your visited worlds. Players will probably be annoyed to figure this out after the hours it can take to map out even a tiny part of these massive planets. I'm here eating my fist because I can't make cities...

For all the years I've been testing Baidu I finally figured it out.

To recap:

Baidu is like a Chinese version of Google. As such the majority of the services you get from Google have some kind of analog.

But as they are different companies Baidu has some services that rival or actually embarrass Google.

Google even tried to push its search and other...
